Recap of Harrisburg Short Track

The fury of Short Track is in the air. A few memebers of the Harrell's Bicycle World squad made the trip up to Harrisburg NC this past weekend, for the Bank of NC Short Track Series. An excellent way to blow out any ounce of energy one may have left in the legs at the end of a long season. Just short of a mile and chalk full of berm turns, switchbacks, dips, fast sections and one grunt of hill to finsh you off on every lap. Consider it like crit racing on the dirt. This type of racing can really go by quickly and spectator friendly.

Up first was Clint racing a cyclocross bike in the Masters field.

Next was Toby, with a 2nd place in the Single Speed field.

Then Jamie coming in 5th in the Expert field.
(pics to follow soon)

Next race will be the night version of the series. Chime in here if your ready to race this weekend and carpool up to the event.

Friends of Harrell's

Just wanted to thank all the Harrell's Bicycle World staff for getting me to the Worlds 24hr Solo Championships this past weekend in Conyers Ga. Bringing home a 2nd place in the 30-34 age group. This was the completion of my 12th Solo 24hr event. Paul and the shop has supplied me with the help for ever single event. Also a special THANK YOU goes out Garmin Navigation Systems for the additional support. I'm hoping to have a full report in the next day or three so skip on over to palmettosolo and check it out.

Few Updates

Just a few updates for the Oct/Nov. months.

There is also a race in Charleston SC called the Swamp Sweat. I have done it 2x now and it is worth attending. Date: Nov. 4, 2006 (Saturday) Time: Expert starts at 10am. Distance: 26 miles.

It is actually 26 miles of tight single track and plenty of competition. A lot of the VW team guys race and Justin Fisher who races the Harbison and Cane Creek Races.
Let me know if you are interested. I will be there. - Joe

The Swank 60K mtb race up in the Pisgah area. Great fall ride. Group Camping avalible - race fee $70 w/ fully stocked rest stops. Anyone interested contact LeRoy for more info. Link to his site is over on toolbar >>>>>>>>>>>>>.

UPDATE to Hobby Park
WOW! The pros / experts 19 -29 class are fast. But I'll Take 7th out of 13 on the 1st try. With hard core winter training maybe I will be competitive.

Lastly the I will be in the World Solo 24hr race down in Ga this weekend. Trying to roll it for the Harrell's/Garmin team. So wish me luck. The plan is to update my blog during the race. This is the plan so check in if your interested, or you have to get up to pee @ 3am.
